A Date Twenty Years Later
30 January 2012 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In 2011, in Rio de Janeiro, the brilliant scientist and physics professor João "Zero" Henrique (Wagner Moura) is researching an alternative source of power through the use of a particle accelerator device that he has designed. His wealthy friend Sandra (Maria Luísa Mendonça) has sponsored his research and his best friend Otávio (Fernando Ceylão) has helped him with the engineering. However, Zero has been a bitter and frustrated man for twenty years since he was humiliated in public by his sweetheart Helena (Alinne Moraes), who has become a famous top-model managed by her former boyfriend Ricardo (Gabriel Braga Nunes).

One day, Zero decides to test his particle accelerator and he accidentally travels to the past, more precisely to 22 November 1991, the day that changed his life with the embarrassment in public. However, Zero decides to fix his past and he tells to the teenager João Henrique what Helena would do with him. Further, he gives economical tips to João Henrique and Otávio to make them earn lots of money. When Zero returns to 2011, he finds the present totally changed in an alternative reality and he does not like what he sees. He decides to travel to 1991 again, to put the past back on trail, but now the situation is more complicated.

"O Homem do Futuro" is one of the best Brazilian films that I have recently seen and I have really loved this film. The story is a romantic comedy combined with sci-fi that uses the storyline of "The Butterfly Effect", with a man traveling to the past expecting to fix the future, but making things worse instead.

Wagner Moura proves that is a versatile actor, performing three different roles. Alinne Moraes is very beautiful and shows a great chemistry with Wagner Moura.

"O Homem do Futuro" follows the style of American movies, with top-notch special effects, but the delightful story will certainly be a wonderful entertainment for the family and friends. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "O Homem do Futuro" ("The Man from the Future")

Note: I saw this movie again on 06 Sep 2013.
